Young Thug Files Emergency Motion Over Inhumane Jail Conditions


Last week Atlanta rapper Young Thug was arrested on RICO charges, and held without bond, after being accused of being the ringleader of the Young Slime Life gang [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Thug's legal team claims he is being held in inhumane conditions...

From WSBTV
In the new motion, lawyers called the conditions Williams is being housed in “inhumane,” saying he’s being held in solitary confinement in a windowless cement room “as if he is a forgotten person alone in the world.”
“Mr. Williams is held in a cement small area. There’s a light on all the time. He gets inedible food Williams’ attorney Brian Steel told Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne. “He has no contact with any human being except for his counsel.”
Lawyers said the lights are kept on 24 hours a day, preventing the rapper from sleeping and that he has no access to any type of media. They said he is not being given the opportunity to exercise, shower or have any human interaction other than his counsel.
The Cobb County Sheriff said he’s being held in administrative solitary confinement for his own safety, and the lights stay on so officers can check in and make sure that he is OK.
“He will be vindicated but this is wrong,” Steel said. “He is being treated the exact same as the person next door to him who has been arrested tried and convicted for murder and sentenced to death.”

WELP, play stupid games, win stupid prizes. They all want to GANG GANG until it is time to pay your dues. You infested your hood with drugs, beat up people, and possibly killed some as well. This shit ain't a game.

He should be able to sleep with the lights off. Innocent until proven guilty is the law right? Anybody saying different don't understand they are one bad decision (false arrest) away from being this dude. You're not alway's in jail because you actually did wrong.

^^^ He's innocent until proven guilty and deserves humane (not luxury, humane) treatment while awaiting his trial. Some inmates can be incarcerated for years before getting to trial so living in humane conditions is a valid complaint. Most people will never know what it's like to be in a jail but please understand this very clearly: not every jail house is a squalid dungeon with horrible facilities and food, that is a choice by the mismanagement of the administration. There are some jailhouses that are so deplorable that the feds had to step in to improve conditions. Also, did you know that they charge a jail fee now? So everyday you are in jail you have to pay a small fee but it adds up, I think it's $5 a day...at any rate the officials have a legal obligation to keep the inmates in good care. I'm sure that being racist ass GA, the jail (with mostly blacks) is going to be extra disgusting.

If jail is so bad why does he keep doing crimes?He is aware of said inhumane conditions as the last time he was there? If you don’t like jail stop doing criminal activities.
